Since October 18th 1985 the date the NES came out in NA which just happened to be my 7th birthday.

So that would make it 27 years.

I got my first computer in 1985 (a ZX Spectrum); a short time later I started buying computer and gaming magazines and the rest is history. :-)

I used to have a gold edition atari 2600 which was my first console alongside my NES, but mom sold it for $50 at a yard sale.

The first system I ever played on was a very old Apple Learning system computer which was for a old game called Number Munchers. It was given to me as well as donated to me an Apple II computer from a person at my mothers work. It was one of the coolest games i ever played when i was a little kid. Thats as far back as i can remember for when playing games. And then of course you guys know otherwise i played on the NES SNES and so on so forth.

@Tails86: Lol I remember playing Number Munchers back in elementary school. That and Oregon Trail were the only games we were allowed to play in school.

My first was a Sega genesis with sonic and a couple others I forgot, the a GB with DKL, then a PSOne with Spyro, MGS, Crash, WipEout, FFVII, and others I can't remember. But then I got a PS2 with some titles and R&C, MGS2, J&D, a few others to, then I got a GBA and for the first time realized one of my favorite shows (Pokemon) had... GAMES? Surprised so I picked up silver version and a few months later Ruby, then my friend showed me his N64 he was giving away with SSB, Mario 64, and Stadium, so I got those, and was interested in a game with the robot dude from SSB (metroid Razz) and picked up fusion for the GBA, then picked up a GCN with SSBM and at that point I wanted to know more about Nintendo characters, picked up Yoshis island and SMB3 for GBA, and Golden sun, then Colloseum for GCN and Metroid Prime, then I got a DS with SM64DS and emerald, a little after that I got XD, then the day came back in 2006 when I saw the SSBB trailer, then I was all like.... Ok time to get series on Nintendo history, and whoop here I am and haven't looked back. Smile (sorry for long post)

My father got a C64 when I was a baby. And I picked up the joystick when I was able to grab it with my baby hands. Some of my favourite earliest game memories are Super Pipeline (1983) and Gribbly's Day Out (1985) I had on cassette tape.

Naturally grew up with most of the early 80ies classics like Space Invaders, Donkey Kong, Pac-Man, Galaxian, Frogger, Mario Bros., Boulder Dash, Ghosts'n Goblins, (and a thousand other games) etc.

Then came into contact with Amiga and IBM PC's in the early 90ies, and a few consoles like NES, Game Boy, Master System, and Mega Drive. Wanted a Mega Drive for christmas because Sonic looked fantastic. Got a SNES instead (mothers) with 3 games (Super Mario World, F-Zero, Super Soccer) and a Super Game Boy. I was pretty disappointed until I plugged it in, F-Zero being the first game I tried on my first own Nintendo. It was lightning fast and felt just amazing but it was ultrahard. Then I plugged in Super Mario World... and Sonic was forgotten. Was totally sold on the system and with Zelda: A Link to the Past, Donkey Kong Country, Super Metroid, Secret of Mana, and tons of other great SNES and GB games following shortly after I never looked somewhere else. Have been a 'fan' ever since, got the N64, Gamecube, Wii and Wii U at launch.
